Taking a rare break from digging, trimming and weeding I snapped some photos. Licuala mattanensis "mapu" has an easy time growing here so I have several. One is seeding and and I have some seedlings sprouted from the first batch. These strangely shaped seeds are bright orange when ripe.

Nothing but nature growing these meaning no supplemental water or fertilizer.

I am sneaking in a tree fern photo. They are a big part of my canopy in this part of the farm.

My views have finally recovered from the devastation of Hurricane Maria 2017.

Thanks and thanks for the help on identifying this palm. This one is from Palmatier Meg labeled Dypsis Malagasy. Thanks Meg as this palm is lovely whatever the name.

Thanks quaman58. However I doubt that I could grow the lovely Braheas and Jubeas that I saw with the IPS a couple of years ago in CA.

Thanks Tim. Chutzpah, tenacity and craziness are a plus to living in the tropics as you well know! Your posts always make me dream of the possibilities....

Hi Dean! Thanks! I look forward to actually meeting you in person and seeing your garden (and your tractor?) next Fall. Your plants are inspirational too.

 

You won’t find me on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram but I enjoy time with friendly palm aficionados around the world on PT.

Keep those great topics coming!

Cindy,

so beautiful and healthy looking palms!! I love the strong green of their leaves!

Despite your regular hurricanes, the Johannesteijsmannia altifrons looks awesome! 

Maybe I should give it a try in our typhoony area, too...

 

best regards from Okinawa -

Hi Lars!

Thanks!
As to the effect of hurricanes on Joey palms, mine were planted after the last one in PR of any significance in 2017.
 

I did put them in more protected locations so the normal tropical winds have not torn their leaves, but time will tell how they do long term. 
 

Good luck!

Awesome garden Cindy! Look's like your growth rate is similar to the Hawaiian gardens. About half of my garden also uses tree ferns for canopy. Do you know the name of tree ferns you are growing? The one next to the Kerriodoxa looks a lot like Cyathea Horrida? Adrian Tejedor has a great guide to the tree ferns of Puerto Rico.

Thanks John! It is truly just a sampling of what I am trying to grow. Planting lots this week before it gets less wet probably next month. Never really dry but less wet...

Thanks! I am guessing you are right about growth rates in the higher rain areas of PR and HI.
I had not seen Adrian’s guide but it does look great!

Thanks so much! I know I have a short one with small teeth on the petioles but by far the most common one has smooth petioles and gets much taller. With this guide perhaps I can name them.

      I have just over 110+ seeds of this choice, desirable Coccothrinax, aka the Old Man Palm from Cuba. I collected them from the ground last Sunday during a visit to Naples Botanical Garden. They are the real deal as there were no other Coccothrinax in that part of the Garden. These are the second lot of C. crinita crinita seeds I have seen and they are quite large, the largest Coccothrinax sp seeds I have ever known. C. crinita crinita seeds are difficult to find as they are almost always stripped from the palms by collectors almost before they are ripe. I have cleaned/dried them and they are ready to go and grow. See link below:

      Anybody else growing this species? I travelled to the DR last year to visit this species in habitat, and managed to collect a few seeds. Seedlings have unfortunately proved a difficult grow under desert conditions,which is surprising,as my conditions seem very similar to those of habitat.
      115F plus temps seem to have eliminated quite a few sprouts. Still have a couple dozen to play with though...

      I have been unable to find much info about this Coccothrinax from southern Cuba. Palmpedia says very little but lists it as a species. Another source I consulted indicated it might be a ssp of C. miraguama but says little else. I found the following info on PalmTalk:
      https://www.palmtalk.org/forum/index.php?/topic/40614-coccothrinax-cupularis/
      No matter, it's a great palm and uncommon in gardens. I planted my mother palm on my Garden Lot around 2012. It has been one of the fastest growing Coccothrinax I have despite receiving no supplemental irrigation. I estimate it is around 10' tall now. I germinated the plants for sale from her seeds and they are ~3 years old now with palmate leaves and sturdy stems. These are the only ones I have.
      Coccothrinax cupularis 3-year-old:  $25.00 for one        Shipping = $12.00 via Priority Mail
                               OR
      Coccothrinax cupularis 3-year-old:  $45.00 for both      Shipping = $15.00 via Priority Mail

      I have been busy trying to eradicate as much of the horrible vine, pica pica (Mucuna pruriens) from my land as possible. This afternoon I called it quits for today and went for a stroll. Two surprises greeted me.
      The first was on my largest Licuala mattanensis 'mapu'. I almost missed it.


      Then I looked more closely at my only Licuala sallehana.
